Share this event:

Practical resources, goal setting and planning techniques to elevate your artist profile.

Being an artist isn't always as clear cut as one would hope. And many creatives don't match the 'starving artist' archetype. So, what does it mean to be a PROfessional artist? What are your responsibilities? What do your peers, curators, directors, gallery owners expect from you professionally?

This session is designed to help you navigate the art community and  art world. You will learn how to elevate your artist profile and how to develop a solid studio/business plan.

June 12 : Contracts for Creatives
Understanding and managing sales and service agreements including commission, consignment and licensing.

July 10 : Feeding Your Studio
Evaluating technical and professional opportunities including residencies, studio environment, and education.

August 14 : Going BIG
The implications of growing as an artist and art based business including fabrication, production, sourcing, and staffing.

This four part series is made possible in part by a grant from the Quimby Family Foundation and the partnership of Creative Portland, Maine College of Art and the Maine Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts.
